Just a little quick bumpdate this week! Nothing too much going on but wanted to answer a few questions & update you on what’s new!
First of all I’ve gotten a lot of questions about maternity vs non-maternity clothes. While there are so things I’m loving that are maternity right now, I am still mostly wearing non-maternity in oversized brands or just sizing up one or two depending on the item.
My favorite maternity brands/places to shop are ASOS Maternity, Ingrid & Isabel, Pink Blush, and AG. Free People is a great brand that gives plenty of room for a bump, and normally I don’t even have to size up. I typically like maternity pieces in basics, like bras, camis, and shorts, but if I do wear normal size jeans or shorts I just do the hair tie trick or use a belly band!
I have had a ton of questions about how tall I am and what sizes I’m ordering, and I am 5’2″, normally an XS. I currently weigh about 123 lbs and am still ordering XS/Small in most clothes, just choosing things that are not as form fitted!
Not a whole lot has changed but I think I’m running out of room in here! My appetite has gone down dramatically, and when I am hungry I end up not being able to eat much. I’ve been dealing with acid reflux still, even with meds and now even nausea before and after eating. While part of me is ready to get this baby out, I am enjoying getting some rest during the day while Cookie is at school and am trying to enjoy these last few weeks as much as I can! I have been having a lot of tightening, and pretty sure baby Blake has flipped. While I’m starting to have some semi intense contractions, they are not regular or consistent (thank goodness!) But they can be uncomfortable. I go back this week for my final ultrasound and I’ll share the details with you guys then! 🙂
Keep your questions coming! As always I love hearing from you and connecting with you guys! 🙂 xo
